Arsenal vs Brentford: prediction for the Premier League Week 28

One more obstacle on the Gunners’ road to the title!

A high powered Gunners attack will test the Bees’ defense in a London derby during the Premier League’s Week 28. The starting whistle will blow on Saturday, March 9, at 6:30pm CET.

Arsenal

Other than a Porto loss in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16, Arsenal is on fire. The Gunners scored mind boggling 24 goals in their last five Premier League games, sit only two points behind leading Liverpool in the standings and seek their first championship since the unbeaten 2003-2004 campaign.

Now, two decades later, Arsenal scores the most in the EPL, allows the least goals and can simply sit and wait for a mistake from the leaders. Especially, considering the fact that there is still a date with Manchester City remaining in the schedule.

Brentford

The Bees from Brentford are trying to hold on to their spot in the Premier League, as they sit six points clear of the relegation zone. 

The London-based team should be fine going forward, as the toughest part of the schedule is soon-to-be past them, with two Manchester City games, Liverpool and Arsenal dates in the span of a month. After this weekend, however, it is going to get easier, but a point or even three at Emirates would be highly useful.

Prediction ⚽️

Brentford has not beaten Arsenal since 2021, as the Gunners won the last two with a similar “1-0” scoreline. A third time, however, might not be the charm, considering the current form.

Sportsbooks adapted to the recent rampage by Arsenal in the Premier League and expect a high octane attack to show up once again, but with a game against Porto looming in, it might be better to store up some energy. Does not mean that Brentford is going to win, but we will side with the guests covering the (+2) spread with 1.82 odds 🔥.
